What Financial Services Robo Advisor can perform 

They are offering various financial services such as 

  • Assets Allocation: They analyze the available options of investment and suggest the best portfolio on the basis of artificial intelligence. They use the algorithm method to rank the different investment options and allocate your wealth to a relatively best option available. 
  • Automated rebalancing: With time, they automatically rebalance the weightings of the portfolio when needed. It is related to the sale and purchase of the assets to maintain the desired or ideal level of allocation. e.g. if the target allocation is 50% investment in stocks and 50% in bonds; due to any reason such as if stock performs well and it might increases their weight in allocated assets, so to bring it back at the target level, the system automatically sells some stocks or bought some bonds to rebalance it. 
  • Dividend reinvestments: If you have some investment, dividends are earned on a quarterly or yearly basis on it. Robo advisors have the ability to manage the accounts by themselves and allowed to reinvest the earnings to the best available options. 
  • Tax loss harvesting: To offset the loss with any taxable income, sometimes intentionally they let the investment suffer some loss. It helps the investors to minimize the payment of tax by use of some intelligent tactics even by following the tax laws. 

We do not deny the importance of human advisors but it is the best alternative available in the market. Even human advisors can improve their efficiencies through the use of Robo Advisors and take more informed and rational investment decisions. finance-service
